A British woman recently discovered that her husband could unlock her Samsung phone when he placed his thumb on the fingerprint reader, which was enclosed in a cheap case, according to multiple reports. A different person posted a video of a similar incident on Twitter.

Galaxy S10 has a huge security flaw that lets any fingerprint unlock your phone

  Galaxy S10 has a huge security flaw that lets any fingerprint unlock your phone Anyone who’s keeping close tabs on mobile rumors might remember there was a time before the launch of the Galaxy S10 when reports insisted on the fact that the first smartphone in the world to feature an in-display fingerprint sensor of the optical variety will not work with screen protectors. We saw several leaks that showed screen protectors featuring a circular cutout where the fingerprint sensor would be. Samsung then made it clear that the optical sensor does work with screen protectors, but these accessories need to be certified by Samsung. The implication here was that some third-party screen protectors might make fingerprint recognition harder or impossible.

SAMSUNG ’S Galaxy S 10 is suffering from a shock flaw that allows anyone to unlock the home Samsung Galaxy S 10 warning (Image: SAMSUNG ). The issue was first discovered by a British couple who found any thumbprint could allow access to the device once a screen protector was fitted.

This Samsung Galaxy S 10 screen protector comes from Mowei and it has all of the things you are looking for to protect your phone’s display from harm. It not only is durable, but it also has an oleophobic screen coating to help protect against sweat and oil from your fingers.

Samsung is responding to the incident with a bug fix, and it is telling customers not to use "certain silicone screen protecting cases."

"If you currently use front screen protective covers, to ensure optimum fingerprint scanning, please refrain from using this cover until your device has been updated with a new software patch," Samsung said in a statement. The company said the update is planned to be released early next week.

The issue affects all models of Samsung's new S10 and Note 10 phones, which can scan people's fingers through the phones' screens. The phones have ultrasonic fingerprint scanners, which use soundwaves to create a 3D map of a person's fingerprint, according to Samsung's website.

Samsung on Friday issued a warning to people with Galaxy S 10 and Galaxy Note 10 phones, which can be tricked to let any fingerprint unlock them. CNBC tested using a third-party screen protector and with a clear plastic case placed over the screen .

Samsung has confirmed that its Galaxy S 10 and Note 10 series suffers from a major fingerprint flaw. Here's when you can expect a security patch. The Samsung Galaxy S 10 smartphones all have USB-C ports to charge up their batteries. However, some charging cables work faster than others.

Samsung has warned that some screen protectors might make the sensor "malfunction." The company provides a screen protector that is specially designed for the ultrasonic fingerprint reader, which costs at least $20 to replace.

Samsung has a history of troubled phone launches. The planned release of the Galaxy Fold was pushed back several months this year after it was breaking for earlier reviewers. Two years ago, Samsung recalled the Galaxy Note 7 after some customers' batteries caught fire. That cost the company billions of dollars.
